two stencils on the sidewalk: "end marriage -- gay shame /// end aids and aids profiteering -- gay shame"

 Gay Shame Opposes Marriage in Any Form. Whatever happened to the time when being queer was an automatic challenge to the disgusting, oppressive, patriarchal institution of holy matrimony? Now, it seems that queers are so desperate to get their taste of straight privilege that they’ll camp out in the rain with the hopes that the state will finally sanction their carnal coupling. We are now faced with the spectacle of thousands of gay men and lesbians rabid with longing for any shred of acceptance from a violent, hypocritical establishment that really wants us dead. Don’t forget—marriage is the central institution of that misogynist, racist system of domination and oppression known as heterosexuality. Don’t get us wrong—we support everyone’s right to fuck whomever they want—we’re just not in favor of supporting the imperialist, blood-thirsty status quo. Local, national, and international conservative and liberal hypercorporate and grassroots media have all swarmed around city hall as if Gavin Newsom is the vanguard leader of gay civil rights. Gavin Newsom came to power by aggressively pandering to the privileged gay vote with a message criminalizing poor people in a city rapt by years of greedy hyper-development. Now, he’s giving back to the gays who got him elected. These are the same sell-outs who have for years promoted gay marriage as the penultimate achievement on the road to “equality.” Yet they are now willing to bestow full credit upon Gavin Newsom for their own misguided work. Newsom is using gay marriage as a wedge issue in order to get national press, and further his megalomaniacal quest for national power. What is depressing is that gay people are so blinded by their desperation for “rights” that they’ll promote a cynical, closet-fascist as the messiah.

"I DON'T" support fare hikes or marriage -- gay shame

two people talking over a wedding ring with alternate thought balloons: "so... what do you say when you run off and get married?" "let me think about it..." above the pair there is a headline that reads: "are you out to destroy marriage?" and "break the bond" and additional text that reads: "does it make sense for courts to decide these questions in a patriarchal tradition? i've already heard enough of their answers to decide." "divorce litigation -- domestic violence -- child custody battles -- economic blackmail -- involuntary hosptialization -- financial dependency -- immigration status -- assimilation of cultures -- jealousy and coercive monogamy -- paternity testing"
